“Obi-Wan Kenobi” was supposed to be released on May 25, 2022.
It was an important date for “Star Wars” fans.
The first film, “A New Hope,” debuted on May 25, 1977.
It would have been exactly 45 years to the date.
On Thursday, Disney announced they were pushing it back by two days.
The new release date is on Friday, May 27, 2022.
However, they will release two episodes at once to make up for the delay.
It is unclear why Disney decided to push back the release date.
It may have something to do with Star Wars Celebration, which takes place from May 26 – May 29 in Anaheim this year.
